I hope you enjoyed the video. So simple and so fun! You could do sooo many color combinations and sentiments! I absolutely love Zig Pens and have just discovered that jerryartama.com and also Simon Says Stamps carry them individually now! Super amazing and I will list them below in our supplies and tools section.
For this card, I used my Winsor and Newtons watercolors to create this look. I love the softness and and elegance especially with the light green background. I also gold embossed the Words Of Inspiration II sentiment. And then added some sequins and also gold twine.
I love the richness of my second card. I am using Zig Brush Pens here and it just contrasts boldly with the black cardstock. My sentiment today is from our Sending You stamp set that is our free stamp of the month when purchasing $50 or more from our store.
I hope you have enjoyed today’s quick tutorial. If you want to see me create cards from start to finish please visit our newsletter classroom. There are over a dozen tutorials now! Our latest tutorial is where I take an in-depth look at polychromos pencils and coloring, blending and coloring on colored cardstock.
Do you own Zig Pens? If so, what do you love most about them? Also if you have any questions or comments, leave them below. I will be hanging out here today to answer questions and chat!
We will see you next week with another video tutorial!
With paper hugs and love, Joanna xoxo
